Caring for a new born and a special needs toddler

Hi guys,

I have a 2.5 yr old who has speech & social delay, he's not potty trained and still has problems sleeping, understanding etc. Investigation into his needs is ongoing by paediatrician and he's attending therapy sessions every week.... Busy schedule !! No diagnosis has been given just yet as its early days. I am also 8 months pregnant, this will be my 4th child (big age gap between the first 2). With my first 2 children the age gap was the same as this time round however none of them were delayed in anyway. My question is does anyone have any advise they can give me in not panicking about coping with a new born and my 2.5 yr old? It's only been recently that I am now starting to worry about how I will fit all the therapy sessions, doctors/case workers meetings with a new born not to mention my 13 yr & 15 yr olds needs ?!? I know, I know I should have stopped at 3 smile Any advise would be greatly received thank you. Oh and forgot to say my husband can be very helpful, I'm not on my own however he's just starting his own business up so timing is rubbish!

I think you would be best posting in www.mumsnet.com/Talk/special_needs this section....there are a lot of lovely and very experienced parents there and they are so supportive.
